Are We Being Swindled?

Are We, being Swindled?


Wait a doggone minute; hold the horses.  Looking at the comments on many blog posts, I get the feeling that many folks don't get the big picture about where our national debt is.  I have had some folks say I have been too tough on Boehner and other leaders; give them some time, but I have kept up the pressure for good reason.  Granted it was the Obama, Pelosi, Reid evil axis that pushed these huge spending levels through, we just don’t…

America, My America

America, My America


America, my America, my home and nation of the free

I’m proud I am an American, as you can plainly see!


How can we help, what can we give, everyone can see

Is our first concern when you are down, it’s clearly not about me

The greatest gift that I can give, is of myself, you see


The greatest happiness I will feel, is when I’m happy with me

We have choices to make, if we are to preserve, our…

The Debt Is Just Too Damn High!

The Debt Is Just Too Damn High!


Our new Speaker of the House John Boehner is too busy shrinking from Nancy Pelosi’s shadow to be of much use to anyone.  He is calling for and losing key votes that are an embarrassment to his party.  He is not paying attention to the mandate the American people gave him and the Republican Party last November, or to his own campaign promises.


To make matters worse it would seem that most of the new Republican leadership…

Rule of Law or Mobocracy?

In Wisconsin you've been witnessing "democracy" in action, the rule of law and republican form of government will prevail! Thank God that the founding fathers anticipated this kind of behavior and gave us a Constitutional Republic. The founding fathers were scared to death of democracy, now you see why (mob rule).


Did you know that for as much as we hear about democracy and its virtues, that its use in describing our form of government is a misnomer.  The term democracy does…

Restore our House

When an information system breaks down, there are two fundamental ways to fix it.  The first and easiest is to simply write more code to counter the erroneous behavior.  The more this solution is used, the more complex the system becomes and the more the real problem is obfuscated.  The second way, the correct way, is to dig down into the system and locate the source code that is causing the problems.  Then, correct that code.  It takes longer in the short term, but it solves the problem…

Happy Birthday to The Gipper

Ronald Reagan Remembered

Ronald Reagan was a Conservative icon for sure

A kitchen table patriot, whose wisdom will endure,

Embracing power with the responsibility of office and without thirst

A man of strong values who loved God, family and Country first

A true culture warrior who revered the sanctity of life

He taught us to love thy neighbor and not covet his wife

The Reagan’s slice of heaven was at their Rancho del Cielo

He seemed happiest at… Continue

Earmarks-Porkulus Beasts or Useful Prescriptions

Earmarks-Porkulus Beasts or Useful Prescriptions

Recently the debate over earmarks has begun to really heat up. No one seems to have shed much light on the issue or made the case “for or against” very well. Earmarks have gained notoriety because of their association with big pork barrel spending and outright bribery (think of Louisiana Purchase or Cornhusker Kickback) to get large spending and regulatory bills passed (think, more taxes and less freedom). Taking the easy button is, to… Continue

Take The Town Halls To Washington

Nationwide Tea Party Coalition - "Take The Town Halls To Washington"
MEMPHIS, Tennessee (March 5, 2010) - The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is today announcing a new project, "Take The Town Halls To Washington", which is designed to bring tea party activists to Washington, DC during the month of March to meet, question and review the positions of approximately 60 Democrat members of the House of Representatives whose vote on the pending Health Care legislation has not yet been publicly announced. Tea Party Nation is a collaborating partner in the project.
Spokesman Mark A. Skoda, who is also Chairman of The Memphis TEA Party stated, "President Obama has indicated his willingness to ignore the people and force his bill through Congress using whatever means necessary. Our objective is to bring thousands of constituents to DC to meet with their representatives, capture their comments and produce a review of those positions on a daily basis. We believe that time is of the essence and the people need to understand where these representatives stand before any vote is taken."
Organizer, Michael Patrick Leahy further stated, "After more than a year of tea party resistance to the big government efforts of the Obama Administration, it all comes down to the next 3 weeks. The Administration has made it clear. They intend to ram down the Health Care takeover through a corrupt Congress by the end of this month, in direct defiance of the clearly expressed will of the American people.”
“It is time for every tea party activist across the country to consider dropping everything he or she is doing and join us in the most important battle of our life time. We need your energy, commitment, and efforts to make this succeed. We need you to consider coming to Washington during this 3 week period, and if you can’t come to Washington, be part of this project in your local area.”
A nationwide webcast is scheduled for Tuesday, March 9, 2010 with meetings in DC scheduled to begin the following day through March 31, 2010. Logistics are being coordinated for those coming to Washington and daily briefings and reviews are scheduled during the project. It is expected that visits will take place while Congress is in session from Monday through Friday.
The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is an informal federation of thirty local tea parties from around the country who work collaboratively on important national projects. It was the group that organized the February 27, 2009 “Nationwide Chicago Tea Party” in 51 cities around the country that launched the Tea Party Movement, as well as the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party, where 1 million tea party activists attended events in over 900 cities.
